IGetDimensionDisplayString4 Method (IView)

Gets all of the dimension text in the current drawing sheet or the current drawing view.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetDimensionDisplayString4() As System.String
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IView
Dim value As System.String
value = instance.IGetDimensionDisplayString4()
System.string IGetDimensionDisplayString4()
System.String^ IGetDimensionDisplayString4(); 

Return Value

Array of strings containing the dimension text (see Remarks)


For each dimension in the drawing sheet or drawing view, this method returns 10 strings. If any of the dimension strings are not used, then those strings are returned as NULL strings.

[ value1, tolMax1 tolMin1, value2, tolMax2, tolMin2, prefix, suffix, callout1, callout2 ]

This set of data is returned for each dimension in the view. See IView::GetDimensionCount4 to determine the number of dimensions in the drawing sheet or drawing view.

NOTE: A previous version of this method, IView::GetDimensionDisplayString2 or IView::IGetDimensionDisplayString2, detects and overlooks dangling dimensions. These method, IView::GetDimensionDisplayString4 and IView::IGetDimensionDisplayString4, do not overlook nor do they indicate that any dimensions are dangling. Use IView::GetDimensionDisplayString2 if you need dangling dimensions detected and overlooked.
